  • Putin to MEET Kim Jong-un as Russia invites North Korean dictator | Daily Star

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un watches a basketball game between former US NBA basketball players and North Korean players, with Dennis Rodman at Pyongyang Indoor Stadium in Pyongyang January 9, 2014.

Trump's goal in the summit is reportedly to get Kim to agree to a nuclear disarmament schedule, according to the article, and he has been advised not to give up any concessions.

National security advisers are briefing Trump daily about the summit, which he wants to use as a vehicle to persuade Kim to shut down North Korea's nuclear weapons program.

Meanwhile Trump has promised to "transform" the rogue state after a meeting with the dictator's right-hand man, Kim Yong Choi.

The White House late Tuesday night confirmed the selection of the Capella Hotel, located on a resort enclave accessible to Singapore's main island by a single causeway.

In a May 25 statement, North Korea's foreign ministry expressed a willingness to continue talks with the Trump administration.

In fairness to Stephen A., he simply said James would "have a conversation with Boston", while listing him among the suitors. The standards have transformed, and they know this has to be the time for them to compete with the best teams in the league.

He "could even play some sort of role in the negotiations" between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, which would make for the latest twist in talks between the two countries.

Rodman has traveled to North Korea in the past and seems to have struck up an unlikely friendship with the North Korean leader.

"I don't think one meeting next week in Singapore can certainly unlock the entire situation on the Korean peninsula", he said.

Multiple US and N Korean teams are holding simultaneous meetings ahead of the Singapore Summit. I think it's going to be a process.

Meanwhile, the White House officially announced the meeting will happen at 9am on June 12th.

Trump aims to persuade the North Korean dictator to give up his country's nuclear arsenal in exchange for relief from USA economic sanctions.
